The Bullet That Guns Down Failure

The Bullet That Guns Down Failure

According to the Oxford dictionary,” determination is the quality that makes you continue to do something even when it seems difficult”. Determination is all about having a firm and unshakable decision to do something without letting anyone or anything prevent you. Many of life’s failure are as a result of lack of determination. Many people give up on themselves without going extra miles to make a change. Determination is about giving it whatever it takes. It requires putting your best in everything you do. It is all about turning deaf ears to people’s mockery. It is important to note that mockery is a requirement for your making. Most of the very influential personalities of today were once mocked, but that didn’t stop their making, it didn’t end their careers. This is because they were determined to never give up.

Everyone is driven by his or her own determination to succeed, to be the first, to be the head and to be outstanding among others. Determination is an innate quality hidden in our soul which can only come to surface when an event triggers it. Determination keeps us firmly centered on a chosen purpose. It requires us pursuing a goal with much focus, zeal, energy and courage.
We might have failed at some point in our lives but determination is the tool we use to keep defeat from becoming permanent. It helps us overcome failure and fear. At the time of failure, determination pushes onward and gives us the energy to triumph by keeping us on the right path. It helps us to make our dreams into realities and to live by our highest values.

Refuse to give up on yourself. Your life is yours to control and to be the best you could ever imagine. By being determined, you are opening the door for a better tomorrow. Determination saves! It is the bullet that guns down failure.

    The post is really inspiring. But then I have to ask: is it not possible for one to be determined to do the wrong thing and be successful in doing it? And would many not still judge such a person to be a successful man or woman?

      Good question Oshone! Yes it is very possible to be determined to do the wrong thing and be successful in doing it. And it’s also possible that people judge that person to be successful. For those people, it’s simply a matter of perception and lack of knowledge about the means that brought forth that ‘success’. But we must learn to use all we have for good purposes, and we must also not judge all forms of success as derived through righteous or upright means. :)
